Bilbo's JourneyBefore Bilbo Baggins meets Thorin, he was a tiny and modest creature living as an ordinary hobbit, in his average hobbit hole. Thorin, who plays therole of a guardian angel in this story, watches over Bilbo as he seeks to complete his journey . The series of events that Bilbo has to face on this journey will change his life forever! He might be at this moment a common hobbit, who is afraid of almost anything, but after his journey he will be fearless and full of confidence!!! He will be a hero of his fantasy world and stories will be told of him for ages to come. However, there are many obstaclesthat block Bilbo from completing his journey: Goblins, a creature named Gollum, wolves, and dragons (smaug). The first obstacle Bilbo and his friends run into are the goblins, wicked and savage creatures, who pillage all who tend to be in their destructive range. They come upon a crowd of scrawnier individuals (the dwarves and Bilbo), in great numbers.
